Apple must dislike that intensely.

Apple Ordered To Publish Notice Saying Samusung did Not Copy iPad in the UK [bloomberg.com]
Apple Inc. (AAPL) was ordered by a judge to publish a notice on its U.K. website and in British newspapers alerting people to a ruling that Samsung Electronics Co. didn’t copy designs for the iPad.

The notice should outline the July 9 London court decision that Samsung’s Galaxy tablets don’t infringe Apple’s registered designs, Judge Colin Birss said yesterday.

Hilarious, and just. It is about time that those who compete in the courts rather than on the merits of their products got restrained.

I think all companies should have to take out ads for their competition when they are found to be wrong. It would surely help cutting down on frivolous lawsuits.

..I knew I wouldn't have to read far to find this sentence:

Apple’s lawyer said the company would appeal the July 9 decision and Judge Birss granted the company permission to take its case to the court of appeal.


Deep-pocket mega-corporations rarely take a losing verdict or sentence as the final word --- you'll read about this again in another 24-48 months, (it usually takes a very long time to get an appeal or "higher court" date). By the time the final verdict and any resulting court order occur, it will all be outdated news.
